    Are all advance dining reservations for resort guests available 180 prior to arrival? Is Be Our Guest a different time? How does one know which have Breakfast Character Meals?

    Hey Dorothy-

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Good news! Advanced dining reservations may be made for all Guests of Walt Disney World Resort restaurants 180 days in advance (made one day at a time). On property hotel guests have the benefit of scheduling dining reservations 180 days in advance plus up to 10 days of their vacation.

    Be Our Guest Restaurant is a magical French-fare experience where you are whisked away to the Beast’s Castle to dine. Explore every room to see the fantastic decorations and the magic rose. This restaurant is available 180 days in advance for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I will be visiting in October and I was able to get an 8:05 a.m. reservation. Getting into the park early allows us to explore the Magic Kingdom Park with no crowds so we can take unique photos of Cinderella Castle and other magical monuments.

    To find all the character meals, go to the Dining section of the Walt Disney World Resort website and adjust the dining experience to reflect Character Experience (found in the Filter By row). Enter your dates, desired time and the party size. Further down on the webpage you will see all the available restaurants with character dining experiences. I would suggest searching in your web browser for “character dining at Walt Disney World Resort” before your 180 day window opens. We have been to most of them and have yet to be disappointed. These meals are a great way to take a break, eat and meet some Disney legends. Bon appetite.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
